A Text Description Exquisite Corpse Dungeon

January 6, 2019

During (and after) these Exquisite Corpse dungeons, people have asked about providing descriptions for the rooms.  There were different suggestions about how to add descriptions to the maps, but nothing  really seemed to fit.  So the Exquisite Corpse dungeons we’ve been mapping have just been graphical.

But those who have wanted to find descriptions for the dungeons should check out the “Tomb of the Exquisite Corpse” collaborative dungeon project being run by Kyle Latino.  It is a project to develop room descriptions and wandering monster descriptions for an eventual freely available document.

The “Tomb of the Exquisite Corpse” is a more modular project, and doesn’t have hooks or hints from one contributor’s piece to the next, like the shared connections from one section of the map to the next contributor.  But it is keeping most of the content hidden until the final reveal of the whole project.

It seems like a really intriguing complement to the Exquisite Corpse Dungeon maps, and anyone who is a fan of one should check out (and even consider participating in) the other.

A Banner Ad

January 5, 2019

ahg banner ad

I rather like this banner ad we’ve cooked up for DriveThruRPG.  We’ve accumulated a bit of capital with them to be able to run some ads, so we’ll see if more people find our collection with this.

Of course, I’m not the intended audience for this.  So this would be something where your feedback about this (whether or not you’re a likely buyer for any Antherwyck House Games titles) would be helpful.

Post- Deal of the Day Thoughts

January 3, 2019

Thanks to the folks who picked up a copy of “The Sentinel Chapel” as yesterday’s Deal of the Day at DriveThruRPG. It was good to get a few sales, and now it’s in the hands of a wider range of folks. Hopefully, a couple of them will give some feedback, and then, maybe, we’ll work on putting out a sequel to it (?)

No promises there, but it’s in the back of my mind.

I’m surprised at the uptake from Fantasy Trip (TFT) players, and I only started re-discovering the close connections between DQ and TFT over the break, when I put together the conversion page. But, with the recent new activity for TFT, this might be a useful synergy.

Late in the year, as the harvest season is closing, and towns and villages are preparing for the coming winter, word has reached the group that someone is looking for a small band of adventurers for a dangerous, but well-paying task. They are to travel into the Fealhoa Valley, a region that has been deadly dangerous for the past 30 years, when it became overrun with monsters and undead creatures. A village called Cambray, several days’ travel into the Fealhoa Valley has been cut off, and no one has been in contact with that community for many years.

The adventurers are to travel to the site of a chapel located about a day’s travel from the town of Cambray and recover the silver letters on the family graves of a group of silversmiths who were originally from Cambray, and whose remaining family members now live in exile.
